Jeff Hardy released by WWE


Jeff Hardy has been released by WWE, according to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.

No other details are known as the time of this writing. Sapp said that he was told "WWE offered Jeff Hardy help and rehab and it was not accepted."

Hardy was sent home following a WWE house show event in Edinburg, Texas, where he was teaming with Xavier Woods and Drew McIntyre against Roman Reigns and The Usos. After working most of the match, reports were that Hardy got more sluggish as the match went on and following a hot tag to McIntyre, he left through the crowd and didn't return.

He was replaced by Rey Mysterio on Sunday's house show in Corpus Christi, Texas. He had most recently been on the November 26th SmackDown in a battle royal for a WWE Universal title shot, getting eliminated last by winner Sami Zayn.

His brother, Matt, said this week that he had spoken with Jeff and that he was at home and doing okay.

The 44-year-old was in his third run with the company after returning with Matt in a surprise at WrestleMania in 2017. Hardy has run afoul of the law several times, spending ten days in jail in 2011 for a 2009 drug bust and arrest for trafficking controlled prescription pills.

He was arrested for public intoxication in July 2019 and in October 2019, he was arrested and charged with DUI in North Carolina.
